A seminar on Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia will be held on September 14, 2018, according to an article on The Press of Atlantic City. It will take place at the Stockton Seaview Hotel and Golf Club from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and will include presentations, courses, and activities for families and experts who work with dementia patients.
It is open to anyone for $45, but nurses, social workers, and occupational therapists who wish to earn continuing education credits will pay $100.
“Morning sessions will cover topics such as grief and loss in dementia, personal experiences with younger-onset Alzheimer’s disease, and guardianship and powers of attorney. Afternoon sessions will cover activities for cognitive stimulation and managing difficult behaviors, how finances impact eligibility for community resources, and precision medicine for Alzheimer’s disease.”
“One-third of the nation’s senior population dies with Alzheimer’s disease or related dementia. The Alzheimer’s Association projects the number of people in New Jersey with Alzheimer’s or another dementia will grow from about 180,000 people this year to 210,000 by 2025.”
